Maguire signs for Manchester United


Manchester United have completed their third signing of the summer transfer window with defender Harry Maguire joining them from Leicester City.

The England international has penned a six-year deal with the Red Devils after they agreed on a world-record £80m fee for a central defender.

“I am delighted to have signed for this great club. I am now looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting the season started,” he told the club’s official website.

United had been desperate to pursue Maguire from the beginning of July, but they could not strike a deal with the Foxes, who were reluctant to reduce their £80m price tag.

Ultimately, the Mancunian giants had to bow to the demands of Brendan Rodgers‘ side and it remains to be seen whether the 26-year-old can hit the ground running from the off.

Aside from Maguire, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side have landed the services of winger Daniel James and right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka from Swansea City and Crystal Palace respectively this summer.

Manchester United are scheduled to host Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League opener on Sunday and Maguire could make his debut alongside Victor Lindelof at the heart of the defence.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has acknowledged that Harry Maguire is on the cusp of signing for the club and he could feature in the Premier League opener against Chelsea.

The England international has already arrived at the Red Devils’ Carrington base for the medical tests and a £85m deal is expected to be announced in the next 24 hours.

In a report covered by the club’s official website, Solskjaer confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Leicester City for the transfer of the defender and he could make his debut against the Blues on August 11.

“Let’s get the details over the line but yeah, [he could be in contention for Chelsea game]. He has played a few games in pre-season, we will have to assess him if and when,” he said.

Maguire will become the Red Devils’ third signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Swansea City and Crystal Palace respectively.

Bruno Fernandes news

United close to Fernandes deal?


Sporting Lisbon are reportedly expecting an approach from Manchester United to secure the services of Bruno Fernandes before the Premier League transfer deadline.

The Portuguese has been linked with the likes of United, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid over the past month but the former have been deemed as favourites to land his signature.

According to AS, the Primeira Liga giants are anticipating an offer from the Red Devils for the midfielder, considering there are only four days remaining before the transfer window closes in England.

Fernandes was hugely successful with Sporting last term and he contributed a stellar tally of 32 goals and 18 assists for the club while largely featuring in the centre of the park.

Meanwhile, United’s ongoing pursuit of Paulo Dybala has seemingly reached a dead end with the Juventus star reluctant to make the move to Old Trafford due to the lack of Champions League football.

Romelu Lukaku has been predicted to make the move to the Bianconeri as part of a swap deal involving Dybala and it remains to be seen whether the Serie A holders offer another player in exchange for the Belgian.

United still in talks for Maguire


Manchester United are reportedly continuing their negotiations to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City despite the Foxes being reluctant to reduce their £80m price tag for the defender.

The England international has been identified as the prime target to strengthen the central defensive department at United but so far, the club have failed to reach an agreement in terms of the transfer fee.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are unwilling to offer more than £70m for the centre-back but they remain hopeful of convincing the Foxes into a sale.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has recently indicated that the club find themselves under no pressure to sell the 26-year-old, though their hand may be forced, if the defender pushes for a departure.

Aside from Maguire, the Red Devils have been fancied to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting and reports have indicated that they are close to agreeing a deal worth £64m for the Portugal international.

Foxes want a higher fee upfront from United for Maguire


Leicester City have reportedly told Manchester United that they are unlikely to sanction the sale of Harry Maguire unless they receive a higher transfer fee upfront.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen on improving the club’s defence ahead of the new season.

According to The Mail, the Red Devils have made an opening bid of £72m with additional bonuses which would be paid, should the club qualify for the Champions League.

However, the Foxes have rebuffed the package and want a bigger sum upfront, given they are not convinced that the Red Devils will make a swift return to Europe’s elite competition.

Maguire, who has four years remaining on his Foxes contract, has been regularly involved with the east Midlands side in their preparations for the new Premier League campaign.

Manchester City have recently failed with a similar offer to United’s for the England international but they have decided against continuing their pursuit of the centre-back.
